Diverse Traditions, Diverse Costumes in Chile
With a territory that runs more than 2,700 miles (4,300 km) from the vast deserts of the north all the way to the Southern tip of South America — not to mention Easter Island in the Pacific — it’s no surprise that the Republic of Chile is home to diverse cultures and traditions. That means you’ll have lots of interesting photo opportunities when you travel to Chile.
During a recent visit (which started in Patagonia and ended in San Pedro de Atacama, in the dramatic Atacama desert — also check out my review of 5 Hot Hotels in the Atacama Desert), I saw several traditional costumes worn by people from various regions. Scroll down to see a few of the most interesting.
